Looks good. How much lower did you expect it to go? What temperature were you fermenting at?

Expected about 1.010, but I normally use Dry English ale yeast (WLP 007), and this was the first time I used the SafAle 4 English ale yeast. My temps were around 65-67*F as I had it near the heat register (I keep the house at 65). I'm sure it will be fine. I'll make another batch after the Oktoberfest I'm making right now and a Dry Stout (maybe tomorrow's project if I get motivated) and I'll keep all of the variables the same and up the IBUs and see how that works out. Might also add more hops with 5 or 10 minutes left in the boil, not so many IBUs but good flavor.
